California Visitors

California law allows California residents to ask companies with whom they have an established business relationship to provide certain information about the companies’ sharing of personal information with third parties for direct marketing purposes. We do not sell or share any California consumer personal information with third parties for marketing purposes without consent. California residents who wish to request further information about our compliance with this law or have questions or concerns about our privacy practices may contact us using the contact information set forth below. This paragraph does not apply to personal information the Job Application Processor collects about job applicants.

International Visitors

By using the Website, your Personally Identifiable Information may be processed on servers located outside of the country where you live. If you are accessing the Website from outside of the United States, please be advised that data protection laws vary among countries, with some providing more protection than others. For example, United States law may not offer the same privacy protections as the laws of your jurisdiction. Regardless of where your information is processed, we will apply the protections described in this Privacy Policy.

European Union Privacy Rights

For our European external contacts, the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) may be applicable. The GDPR provides a framework for organizations to ensure protection of the personal information of European citizens and gives European citizens certain rights. The GDPR permits the processing of job applicant information for legitimate business purposes, including the solicitation, evaluation, and selection of applicants for employment.

Legal Basis for Processing

If you are an individual located in the European Economic Area, United Kingdom, or Switzerland, our legal basis for processing your personal information will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which it is collected. However, we will normally collect or process personal information from you only where:

  • We have your consent to do so; or
  • We need the personal information to perform a contract with you (e.g. to deliver services).

In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to process personal information from you or may need the personal information to protect your vital interest or those of another person.

For individuals based in California, the European Economic Area, the United Kingdom, or Switzerland, where we rely on your consent to process the personal information, you have the right to withdraw or decline your consent at any time in writing or as otherwise permitted by law. Please note that this does not affect the lawfulness of the processing based on consent before its withdrawal, nor will it affect the processing of your personal information conducted in reliance on lawful processing grounds other than consent.

Retention

We will retain your personal information for as long as is needed to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law. On occasion we may anonymize or-de-identify your personal information (so it can no longer be associated with you) for research and statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you. To clarify, in accordance with applicable law, we are not obligated to provide or delete de-identified or anonymized information in response to a request received from you or any other consumer.

When you apply for a job on this site, your personal data will be retained by Seer for as long as Seer determines it is necessary to evaluate your application for employment.

Rights to Access and Control Your Personal Data

Individuals residing in the European Economic Area, United Kingdom, and Switzerland have certain rights to access and control their personal data. These rights include:

  • the right to be informed;
  • the right of access;
  • the right to rectification;
  • the right to erasure;
  • the right to restrict processing;
  • the right to data portability;
  • the right to object; and
  • rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling.

Children’s Privacy

We do not knowingly collect Personally Identifiable Information from children under the age of 13.
